Abstract

In this article, I reflect on the increasing visibility of sexual violence on university campuses by using two cases of recent survivor-centric activism. I see the increasing attention to this issue as a consequence of two different, yet intertwined, acts of student activist labor: the confrontational labor of call out culture, especially as it manifests on social media platforms, and the caring labor of creating communities of support amongst survivors and allies.
